[DMANET] CfP --- Joint ORSC / EURO International Conference 2015 on Continuous Optimization, Shanghai, China, May 10-12, 2015

Joint ORSC / EURO International Conference 2015 on Continuous Optimization

Shanghai, China, May 10-12, 2015


Continuous optimization is a highly interconnected field, having close
relationships to the other areas of OR, with scientific computing and
numerical analysis, and with numerous application areas. In order to
promote academic communication and cooperation between Chinese and
European researchers and practitioners in the field of continuous
optimization, Operations Research Society of China (ORSC) and the
Association of European Operational Research Societies (EURO) will
organize the Joint ORSC / EURO International Conference 2015 on
Continuous Optimization during May 10-12, 2015. Dr. Xiaodong Hu (the
President of ORSC) and Dr. Gerhard Wäscher (President of EURO) are
co-chairs of the conference, Dr. Yuhong Dai (President of the Math
Programming Subsociety of ORSC) and Dr. Julius Zilinskas (Chair of
EUROPT Managing Board) are the co-chairs of program committee and Dr.
Yanqin Bai (Shanghai University, Shanghai) and Dr. Gerhard-Wilhelm
Weber (Middle East Technical University, Ankara) are the co-chairs of
organization committee.

Invited Speakers

Dr. Dongdong Ge (Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, China)

Dr. Yaroslav Sergeyev (Universityof Calabria, Italy)

Dr. Vladimir Shikhman (University of Leuven, Belgium)

Dr. Yaxiang Yuan (Chinese Academy of Sciences, China)
